Sending completed newborn screening specimen cards
Quick delivery of completed newborn screening cards is just as important as collecting a newborn specimen properly. Any delay in shipping newborn specimens to the lab could critically impact the infant's health. The state laboratory courier system is offered as a free service to Colorado clinical and public health agencies. Limited weekend courier services are available, primarily for pick up and delivery of newborn blood spot specimens.
Send completed specimen cards via courier or overnight express service to:
